I once saw Braad Thomsen starting to cry because of Fassbinder's early death when he introduced a film by him, so I know this is a personal subject to him. I enjoyed some of the interviews and Fassbinder on set directing. But I missed more about how the times he lived in shaped him.
3.5 A portrait that is a mix of the personal and the intellectual from Christian Braad Thomsen. A film that certainly engages with Fassbinder in a strong and direct fashion, but one that also feels somewhat old fashioned; therefore it may alienate younger audiences interested in the master auteur of the New German Cinema. Great archive of RWF and strong new interviews with Irm Hermann & Harry Baer.
